Mrs. Sarah Lawson, BS

Mrs. Sarah Lawson, a course instructor for BJU Press Distance LearningMrs. Lawson previously taught kindergarten for four years. "One of my goals in teaching is to help your child feel successful at his present level and to encourage him to improve. Throughout the lessons, we talk about simple yet extremely important concepts, such as ‘God made me special,’ and ‘God gave me the Bible.’ I enjoy talking about these things with the children through the lessons. I wanted to be a teacher from the time I was a little girl, and I’m thankful to the Lord for letting me teach your child through this Distance Learning program."


Mrs. Sherri Vick, BS

Mrs. Sherri Vick, a course instructor for BJU Press Distance LearningSherri Vick previously taught various elementary and junior high grades. "I like to look at the picture as a whole—to relate one subject to another so that the child can see how God’s plan fits together. I want the child to want to learn, so the lessons have to be fun. Hands-on is the best way, so I don’t want the student to just watch, but participate too! One of my goals is that, after watching the lessons, your child will continue in the things he has learned and develop lifelong learning skills that he can use both now and in the future."


Mrs. Debra Overly, BS, MS

Mrs. Debra Overly, a course instructor for BJU Press Distance LearningMrs. Overly, a mother of three, has experience teaching several elementary grades. "I want to encourage each child to look forward to learning each day and also to provide sufficient practice and review activities to help alleviate mom’s workload. Most importantly, I want to present Christ in each subject that I teach. Each child should hear the gospel and then see in a very practical way how it can change a sinner."


Mrs. Jennifer Cox, BS

Mrs. Jennifer Cox, a course instructor for BJU Press Distance LearningMrs. Cox, who previously taught third grade and worked for the BJU Press, continues teaching elementary grades for BJU Press Distance Learning. "Being the mother of three children is quite an education in itself. Dealing with my own children gives me insight into the minds and hearts of young children. I want each child who finishes [a] BJU Press Distance Learning grade to come away with a very sound, excellent education. One way I try to do this is by making each lesson clear and interesting so that the student can grasp the objectives and build on previous knowledge. I want to inspire children to love learning and to understand and believe that only the Christian who trusts God and obeys His Word will live a life filled with blessing and reward."


Mrs. Evanna Walker, BS

Mrs. Evanna Walker, a course instructor for BJU Press Distance LearningMrs. Walker has eight years’ experience teaching first grade at Bob Jones Elementary School. “My first love is to teach a child to read-primarily so that he can read God’s Word for himself and share it with others. He should be able to appreciate what he reads, draw conclusions, and make value judgments to become a thinker.”


Mrs. Ruth Nason, BS

Mrs. Ruth Nason, a course instructor for BJU Press Distance LearningMrs. Nason has taught on the elementary level as well as on the high school level. She believes teaching children is one of the most rewarding jobs. "The reward comes when you get feedback from students communicating to you that they understand. The best part is to see the growth in their lives, not only intellectually but, more important, spiritually. It is a wonderful privilege to be able to teach for BJU Press Distance Learning."

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for summer break! My soon to be 4th grader is using this book over the summer break. It is just enough for him to have a little review of a math and language arts concept each day, with a little fun mixed in periodically. July 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works for us I find that the Vacation Stations is a reasonable amount of work each day to keep the start of school from being too challenging. The concepts are consistent with where my child was in their learning from their grade. July 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great summer revision book This book is good and I will be buying it again. My son prefers this to another workbook that I bought before. June 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great teaching...Big help! Wish I had done this program years ago. Teaching curriculum in a way that my students would listen and learn was a big struggle in the past. This curriculum does a great job at teaching the lessons. My only complaint would be that it is "outdated". The materials are great but the makeup of curriculum and technology has changed a lot since these videos were made. March 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This course is well done and is meeting our needs. Mrs. Vick does an excellent job teaching. Her love for science is contagious! My fourth grader and second grader are doing Science 3 together this year, and it has been working very well. The daily lesson on the DVD adds much more than what we would get from just using the textbook. December 13, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by So happy I'm homeschooling with BJU! I was always afraid to homeschool my daughter because the task seemed daunting, but then a good friend introduced me to the BJU curriculum. It is practically "plug and play" so that even a newbie homeschool mom can be successful! My daughter loves the videos and has made tremendous gains in her ability and confidence in mathematics in just 2 weeks. I am thankful for such engaging, biblical materials, and for the ability to adjust specific portions of the curriculum up or down a grade to best meet my daughter's needs. September 30, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent product The English 3 DVD is excellent. The teaching is excellent and my children really enjoy it. The textbook is easy to use and we love the layout and design. Biblical truths are woven throughout and reminds us continually that we are training our children for the Lord. September 7, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by I think the teacher book shoild be included..printing everything out is not easy.......i would of iked the teacher books... teacher book shoukd be included not on a cd.... difficult to use because of that. so many things to print out September 4, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Skips around too much like a typical public school book Not too impressed with this text. Has no meat to it. And the video needs updating actually shakes and is blurry! August 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful! This is my first year using BJU and it has been a wonderful experience. The videos are top notch and the teaching is phenomenal. The lessons are interesting, engaging, thorough, thought-provoking, Biblically-based and FUN (lessons are taught using graphics, experiments, "field trips," puppets and special guests). My daughter actually gets excited to do work, especially with English and Bible. This makes me very happy because she wants to learn. BJU has definitely made my life a little easier with three children. With the dvd program, I let the teachers teach and I'm there if they need extra help. The curriculum includes a detailed schedule of what needs to be done everyday. This way, my children are able to work independently as I monitor. Thank you BJU! July 3, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent choice for summer!! The kids love their Vacation Stations books. They look forward to doing them every summer. They can keep their minds active and remember and learn new things. June 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Absolutely love!! We are switching from public school to homeschool and a BJU representative suggested using the Vacation Station as a transition. My daughter looks forward to each days lessons. It not only helps us to adjust to homeschooling but also where she is expected to be academically for next year. We can't wait to get the 4th grade cirriculam!! Thank you, BJU!! June 11, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Vacation station going into 4th grade Organized concise and simple to use. Kids really love to use product, keeps children sharp throughout summer. June 1, 2013
